SB19 is back to make you move! After their hit song “Moonlight” had everyone dancing, they’re teaming up with Filipino-American hip-hop legend Apl.de.Ap for another epic collab.

The song will hit you with explosive beats and catchy melodies that will have you grooving. This song is a surefire hit with major crossover potential, meaning it’ll get people dancing worldwide!

Keith Harris, a longtime collaborator of the Black Eyed Peas, produced the song. According to Apl.de.Ap, Harris did an amazing job blending pop music influences with electronic music elements, dance music, and Afrobeats.

The resident BEP rapper also penned “Ready” with Jean-Baptiste, Vince Nantes, and Denzel. On the other hand, SB19’s very own Pablo and Josue (Radkidz) contributed to the track’s production, adding final touches and subtle sonic elements. With party-starting vocals gliding
atop carefully structured production, “Ready” highlights the individual strengths of both SB19 and Apl.de.Ap while nurturing their chemistry with pure, instinctive joy.

“We never got the chance to record together in a single booth, but Apl.de.Ap was such a great guy to work with,” shares SB19’s Justin. “It’s an honor to collaborate with a global superstar of his caliber. We’ve learned so much from his generosity and creative feedback.”

SB19’s Stell was also ecstatic about sharing how game-changing the entire experience was. “It was something new for the group. We appreciate the chance to delve into new genres and production styles that come with unfamiliar territory. But with Apl.de.Ap at the helm of the creative process, we’re just blessed to take on this assignment. It’s not every day that you get to work with an artist you look up to.”

SB19 and Apl.de.Ap’s “Ready” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.
